Asda supermarket in Forty Road
A man is in a serious condition after being shot in the head on New Year's Day, police have confirmed.
The incident happened near to the car park of Asda supermarket in Forty Road, off the Chalk Hill Road, on January 1 at around 5.30am.
Officers were called to the scene and a short time later were told that a man had been admitted to a North West London hospital suffering from a gun shot wound to the head.
The victim, who is a 22-year-old black man, remains in hospital in a serious condition, but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
Police believe that the victim had been to a New Years Eve party at a flat in Curie House, Havenwood, in the Chalk Hill Estate prior to the incident. He had then made his way to the Chalk Hill Road area near to the Asda car park when the incident is believed to have happened.
No witnesses have yet come forward, but police are keen to talk to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area at the time.
The investigation has now been taken on by officers from Operation Trident, the Metropolitan Police's anti gun crime initiative, but no arrests have yet been made.
